This is a stripped-down version of a single section of Grok TiddlyWiki, optimized for fast loading and readability by search engines. Some features are missing.
For the full Grok TiddlyWiki experience, please visit the wiki version of this page.
When you don't know what you're looking for precisely enough to formulate a full-text search, you can browse through lists of tiddlers. Let's take a look at the available options. All of these are found under the More tab of the sidebar.
textfield of any other tiddler. If your wiki relies heavily on linking for relating ideas, looking for orphans periodically can help you identify which tiddlers are at risk of getting lost.
If you're following along in your own wiki, you'll notice that we skipped System, Shadows, and Explorer. Understanding what these do requires knowing about some internals of TiddlyWiki we haven't covered yet, so we'll come back to these tabs later (in the System Tiddlers and Shadow Tiddlers sections).
There's one more piece to cover here – the Open tab of the sidebar. As the name suggests, it shows you at a glance all the tiddlers that are currently open in the story river. You can close or jump to an open tiddler by clicking on the button or the link, respectively.
The Open tab has another trick that's difficult to replicate any other way, and unfortunately it's the least discoverable: you can drag and drop the tiddlers in the list to change the order they appear in the story river.
Why is that important? Imagine you're working on a tiddler and you have eight more open above it, and you realize you need to pull up another tiddler as a reference. When you open a tiddler by searching or clicking in the sidebar, it'll open at the top of the story river. If you didn't have the option to reorder, you would now have to repeatedly scroll through eight unrelated tiddlers, or close them all even though you weren't ready to, just to move back and forth between them!
Another way to see several related tiddlers at once is to choose the Open in new window option under the more menu of a tiddler in view mode (you can't edit a tiddler in a new window, unfortunately).
If you find yourself doing this often, there's a nifty plugin available as part of Stroll that adds a second column to the story river so you can move tiddlers side by side. But if you only need this occasionally, the additional complexity might not be worth it.
If you haven't already done so, take a look at each of the tabs discussed above in your sample wiki.
